First test flight of my FPV enabled turbine sport jet. Without really trying got up to 237mph and 1200ft. Speed and altitude telemetry displayed in the video. Learnt a lot and a few improvements to be made on our next outing. Have included a short look at the GPS data in Google Earth at the end.

Unbelievable stuff!

You probably won’t be needing your FPV Spitfire any more.
I have just enough space in my apartment for one...

We took the FPV gear out of it. We think it was reducing the affect of the vertical stabiliser and making it not so good to fly. Shame because nothing better than a Spitfire to fly in formation.
